Inspiration

The unique food challenges of some regions including West Africa and the lack of sufficient governmental support for farmers.

What it does

A software application that allows the public to invest money in farming operations, providing farmers with the financial resources to be trained, acquire farm equipment, and maximize their crop yield. Farmers are then connected to key stakeholders in the food supply chain such as grocers, giving farmers the opportunity to sell their farm produce at a fair price.

How we built it

We did the design mockup for the application using Figma and started the development using React.

Challenges we ran into

We had some challenges including:

  • Identifying practical ways to implement the project idea in a software application, and
  • Coming up with a good design prototype for the mobile web version of the application.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We were able organize our ideas and begin the process of building concrete implementation in a software application.

What we learned

We learned how much impact leveraging technological approaches can present to solve societal problems.

What's next for Agrica

To complete the development of Agrica's software application and connect stakeholders in the food supply chain to farmers, enabling the farmers sell their crop yield at a fair price and generate substantial profit.
